When you use Fulcrum calculation fields in your app, your formula can output different data types depending on what you’re calculating.

You can configure and control the calculation field to display the data in several formatting options:

Text - useful for calculations that append strings

Numbers - when you use calculation results to feed other number calculations, this is the best way to go

Date - doing date calculations like adding a number of days to an existing date, this will save as a date object

Currency - when formulas do math on monetary values, you can display the result as any standard country currency format
